Crooner David Crosby Debuts His Biopic to His Celebrity Superfans in The Hamptons
While his unforgettable harmonies were being poorly reenacted in just about every Hamptons watering hole, crooner David Crosby—of the famed Crosby, Stills & Nash—was holding court with his celebrity superfans on Saturday night during a Cinema Society screening of David Crosby: Remember My Name held at a theater in the center of East Hampton. They included Robert Downey Jr., who gabbed with Crosby before the gritty biopic was screened. (The film has already earned widespread acclaim since previewing at the Sundance Film Festival.) In it, we see an honest portrayal of the rockstar, whose ups and downs led him to a booming solo career that still continues at the spry age of 77.
“The guys who did all of the work—[producer] Cameron [Crowe] and [director] A.J. [Eaton]—did all of the hard work,” Crosby told Vogue. “In the end, my only contribution was to not lie, and I think the way they made this film communicates it all beautifully. I’m really happy with it.”
Following the screening, moviegoers convened at nearby hotspot Moby’s, which overlooks the Maidstone Harbor Marina, where they were given a chance to rub elbows with Crosby and his wife, Jan Dance. Among the group was Brooke Shields, who split a pizza with the couple, and Martha Stewart, who enjoyed arancini with Jane Krakowski and Dylan Lauren. But it was the rosé that kept the celebration rolling until guests were treated to a fireworks display put on by the local town government. In the end, even Crosby, who has traveled across the world many times over, wasn’t immune to the beauty of Long Island’s South Fork.
“I personally haven’t hung out here in a long time, but it’s beautiful, and we have a lot of friends here tonight,” he added. “Actually, it’s one of the places we put together Crosby Stills & Nash. We rented an A-frame house and rehearsed not too far from here.”
